About Domaine Jean-Michel Gaunoux 2013 Pommard, Les Perrieres, magnum 1.5L
Magnum 1.5 Liter
With a family that’s been rooted in the Cote d'Or for several centuries, Jean-Michel Gaunoux cultivates 14-1/2 acres of vines across Meursault, Pommard, and Volnay holdings. Jean-Michel worked with his father, Francois Gaunoux, of Domaine Francois Gaunoux, until establishing Domaine Jean-Michel Gaunoux in 1990.
Practicing sustainable farming in the vineyard, Jean-Michel works the soil without pesticides, doing a green harvest to ensure low yields. Via traditional vinification methods, Gaunoux’s wines see 15-30% new oak and are bottled after 15-16 months; they are neither filtered nor fined, and their aging potential is outstanding.
This wine is from the famous Les Perrieres vineyard with soils primarly of limestone with some clay. This mid-slope vineyard has excellent exposure and the vines are up to fifty years of age.
Grapes are hand harvested and fermented slowly on native yeasts in barrel, temperature controlled, then aged in 30% new barrels up to 16 months. Bottled unfiltered.
This wine shows berries, plums, woodsmoke cedar and spices on the nose. The palate is rich and layered with concentrated berry, spice, eath and smoked meat nuances. Bright, balanced acidity and supple tannins give it a lift and a caressing mouthfeel. On Sale!!
